Lesser Goldfinch

I had been trying to get a good picture of a Goldfinch for some time with little success, so I improvised. I put a piece of a tree root on the back
porch brick wall and spread some bird seed along the wall. Later on that day I looked out to see this Goldfinch sitting in the middle of the tree root
and was lucky to get some pictures before she flew away.

Gorgeous detail and nice light, Jim. I like the eye contact and pose as well.
